AN antibiotic gel for ear infections in children.Created by:
Ear infections are very common in children. 95% of the children are getting ear infections at least once in the childhood. Antibiotics are widely prescribed by the general practitioners as the treatment for otitis externa and otitis media. Every drug has side effects which will address other systems of the child. For the ear infections, high doses of antibiotics should be administered. Oral thrush, rashes and diarrhoea are the common side effects developed by them. So some of the researchers from Boston Children's Hospital have developed an antibiotic gel which can be squirted into the ear and the canal and has a local action hence reduce the possibility of having side effects.
